    WTB 257 Roberts cases once fired or new

    I am teaching a vet living on medical discharge pay to reload. He shoots a 257 Roberts and has very few cases to reload. I'm looking for clean or dirty,fired
    or new cases. If you have some to sell or donate, Can you help out

    You could drag him into the deep end of reloading right off the bat, 30/06 - 270 brass is easier to find for free and is a reasonably simple conversion.

    If you are taking someone down the garden path of reloading, take him all the way

    I can form some cases if he wants to trim the excess case neck.
    No charge.

    Good morning
    6mm (easiest neck up) or 7x57 brass is an easy way to make it. Readily available with some searching.
